    But aren't the skirts ground FX to increase mileage?

    Yeah. I just took them off to clean the wheels then put them back on. It's funny how much it changes the look of the car though eh?

    Ordered a lightweight flywheel and clutch for it, front lower brace (underbody connectors for rigidity, it has the TRD strut stuff) and poly motor mounts. It had a bad clutch so I got it for a pretty good price. I might be getting a hardtop tomorrow... *fingers crossed*

    Basically turning it into a street/race car mostly focusing on agile maneuvering.

    I sold my 190. The 2.6(I6) was decently quick and a bitchen interior for such a cheap/old car. The front seats had plenty of room, I had friends that were 6' 6" in the front and they weren't very cramped. The back seat is a joke, unless you put the front seats way forward.



    NEW VEHICLE.
    DRZ 400. I got this bad boy back in May. Just started to change the color scheme, needs a new seat cover and bark busters.

    The truck got a paint job early this year too. Here's a pretty recent shot of her in camping clad.

    Same damn gas tank. I had two 10"(1kw amp) subs in my green car. It wanted to blow the trunk lid off, but it was barely loud in the car.
